Rockwood 8272S

Have ordered a Rockwood 8272S for delivery in early March. The brochure is a bit vague in that it list 20 lb propane tanks and no option for 30 lb tanks. Also it list 14 inch tires as standard, no option for 15 inch although the specification list 15 inch tires. Confusing huh. Anyone know for sure?

1 mtnman,

Welcome to the Forest River Forums.

That's a misprint in the brochure. The Signature Ultra Lite series come standard with two 30# propane bottles and 15" wheels.

Enjoy the forums.

to the Forest River Forums 1mtnman. Looks like Mike has answered your first question. Don't hesitate to ask us anything else. Congratulations on the new trailer due in March. Post some pictures when you get it. We like pictures.

Rockwood 8272S

Thanks gentlemen for verifying my suspicions regarding tire size and propane capacity. The sales person was no help in this case. Don't you hate it when people attempt to sell merchandise and haven't a clue what they are selling. Are those of you who own Rockwells satisifed with the product?
I am trading in my Traillite by Rvision which has been completely trouble free for a bit larger unit. hope the new unit will serve me well also.

good you found us
visit often and ask away, somebdy will jump up with a possible answer

salesmen are a funny breed, youd think they would know their products???
its not just towables, they are all lacking.
i think they get job changes to often. sales can be a big headache
